Mark the Autumn Equinox by joining us live online at the site of Mirror Pavilion, Corn Work on the banks of the River Corrib at Claddagh Quay to watch the sunrise.

In the Northern Hemisphere the Autumn Equinox marks the end of summer and the beginning of Autumn. On the Equinox, day and night are of equal length and in Pagan mythology the Autumn Equinox was considered a sacred day as the harvest was collected and the stocks for winter were hoped to be plentiful.

We invite you to join us as we gather virtually at the Mirror Pavilion to reflect on the changing of the seasons. Mirror Pavilion, Corn Work, located by the River Corrib, recalls histories of grain milling in Galway. The Straw Boys, remade virtually, on the LED wall in the work also change with the seasons as they commemorate attitudes toward agriculture and the landscape.

Join us live from 7.00am Irish Standard Time as we prepare to greet the sunrise at 07.35am.
